Juvenile Delinquency in Fairfield, OH

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Fairfield County, juvenile delinquency offenses are on the rise. There are many reasons for the inflation in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Ohio often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of charges, and other family matters.

In 2017, a total of 654 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Fairfield County. Of that total, 77% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 506 court cases. Another 19% were dependency cases that accounted for 126 of the juvenile cases.

A lot of counties, including, Fairfield County, are focusing on family counseling and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Fairfield County juvenile delinquency tallies will show whether or not this approach is working.
